1. Cllr. Gavin Ayling - August 1, 2006

This was one group in particular that needed more time, though of course I am sure we could all have managed several weeks discussing this subject!

Ravi Singh and Dr Philip Seltsikas’ comments were particularly interesting and anyone interested in verification of identities, particularly during election time, should contact Election Mall…

In the long term one of my main concerns is the necessity of holding IDs which, one need not say, are a contentious issue in the UK at the moment. The speakers were reassuring about the ownership of identity remaining with the citizen rather than by the state/government. While this would be the ideal, I strongly suspect optional sharing of ID will be compulsory in one way or another. Either by explicity compulsion or by necessity of service use.
